I am not really into gore. Meaning movies like Saw and Hostel. Those type of movies have gotten to be so realistic that I can really almost feel the pain that those poor souls go through. Its a little much for me. But these next few movies give me the creeps like no other, ESPECIALLY the first two.
1. THE GRUDGE
This movie totally scares me. Its not the necessarily the storyline or anything but its the horrible, wide eyed, malicious intent behind the ghosts in this movie. Especially the little boy-the cat boy. And that terrible, gutteral sound-aaaaaaaaaaaaa. I seriously can’t stand to look at that boy for very long. And it does give me nightmares. But hey, you might want to check it out…..
The Grudge describes a curse that is born when someone dies in the grip of a powerful rage or extreme sorrow. The curse is an entity created where the person died. Those who encounter this evil supernatural force die and the curse is reborn repeatedly, passed from victim to victim in an endless, growing chain of horror. The following events are explained in their actual order; the original film is presented in a non-linear narrative.
The Saeki family lived happily in suburban Tokyo, but housewife Kayako Saeki fell in love with her college professor, Peter Kirk, obsessively writing about him in her diary. However, her husband Takeo discovered the diary. Believing Kayako was having an affair, he becomes mentally disturbed and murders his wife by snapping her neck to a 90 degree angle, crushing her throat. He then drowned his young son Toshio in the bathtub to cover his tracks, along with the pet cat, Mar. Takeo hid the bodies in the attic and closet, before Kayako’s ghost murders him by hanging him with her hair in Toshio’s bedroom. Peter comes to the Saeki house to speak with Kayako after receiving a letter from her, only to find her corpse. Shocked, he flees the house, committing suicide the next day by falling over the balcony of a building in front of his wife. The family rise again as ghosts due to their rage and sorrow, notably Kayako, who appears as an onryō ghost, leaving the curse on the house.
2. THE RING
The thing that gets me about this movie is also not the storyline so much as the jerky movement in which the ghost moves. To be honest, watching the movement makes me feel quite sick to my stomach. There’s just something so wrong with it. I can tolerate this one better than The Grudge but not by much…
Rachel Keller is a journalist who decides to go undercover on the mysterious death of her niece and her three friends, who seemed to all died on the same day at the same time- 10:00 PM. After being told that her niece was found in a closet with a horrifying look on her face, she searches through her room and finds some pictures, pictures of the cabin where her niece and her friends had stayed a week before the deaths. Rachel finds the cabin and finds an unknown video there. She decides to watch it there, and now has only a limited time to live. She and her divorced husband, Noah, research about the video and find facts about Anna Morgan and her daughter, Samara Morgan, the maker of this video. With only a week left, Rachel and Noah discover the unknown secrets of the life of Samara Morgan, and, hopefully for them, a way to break the curse.
3. WRONG TURN
This movie is pretty darn scary. Think how many times people might take a ‘wrong turn’ and end up somewhere strange and remote. This fact combined with the pure craziness of the killers sends a chill down my spine…..
Wrong Turn is an American horror film series. The main plot follows various families of deformed cannibals who hunt a group of people in West Virginia, usually killing them all in horrific ways, using a mixture of traps and weaponry, for food.
4. JEEPERS CREEPERS
The bad guy, or thing, in this movie is so creepy and downright evil that it makes me look twice before going outside at night.
Siblings Trish and Darry are on their way home from their freshman year at college, When suddenly their trip starts to turn dangerous when they are nearly run off the road but a crazy driver. When they get going again they see a man in a trench coat and a hat that covers his face dumping something down a drain pipe. They then recognize him as the man who tried to run them off the road earlier and go see what he dumped after he leaves, but what they discover is too terrifying for them. They get help from a crazy woman who has too many cats and a psychic before they realize what’s been chasing them is an ancient demon known as the Creeper who eats people to regenerate his parts and he sees something in one of them that he wants for his snack.
5. TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE
Original Version: 2003 Version:
This movie is scary enough in its own right. What makes it worse is that is based on the TRUE story of Ed Gein, a real life psycho serial-killer. It was remade in 2003 so I am including both versions here.
The year is 1974. A group of five close friends are heading through the back roads of Texas en route to their grandfather’s potentially vandalized grave. Among them are Sally Hardesty, and her invalid brother Franklin. They encounter an unpleasant hitchhiker (Neal) who slashes both himself & Franklin with a wicked-looking knife. The others manage to eject the hitchhiker from the vehicle, but shortly after wards, they are forced to stop & wander over to a small, sinister clapboard house nearby in hopes for gas. What none of them realize is that this house is the home of the ghoulish Leatherface (Hansen) and his evil, demented family of cannibalistic psychopaths. One at a time, the teens are murdered by the evil Leatherface in horrifying ways. Sally soon finds herself an involuntary guest at Leatherface’s home, and flees into the night to escape the demented cannibal and his loudly-buzzing chainsaw. Can she escape the grim fate that befell her friends & brother? Based on the terrifying true story of Ed Gein.
A group of young adults are on their way to a Lynard Skynard concert in Dallas. They cross through a small, isolated town called Travis County. They pick up a disturbed woman who then shoots herself with a gun. Looking for the local authorities, the group travels through the town, meeting the locals. One by one, they are picked off by a strange man with a demented face. Realizing that they are in mortal danger, they must escape from the town from a family of cannibals and a chainsaw-wielding madman.
